We have been married June 2006. We adopted our son in 2008. My husband was a head injury and incomplete spinal cord injury at this time. In the last year he has had 4 stints put in a couple heartaches and a pacemaker put in. Since this time he has be came very mental abusive and physical. I have talked to all Dr. To get him help. I tried to get him help for 6 months, he even called our family Dr. At 9pm on a sat. Informed him that he feels like he is 20 and wants to hurt someone. A month later he still was not getting better, he had the 12 year old against the wall with his fist pulled back like he was going to hit him, I entered the room and he said you little lots of nasty words I jumped up between them and told him what the h are you doing, he looked at me with total black eyesHe informed me that I will not be around all the time I will take the boy out. I have never seen him like this and he has told me stores of him growing up in jersey and how he was when he was 20. He has hurt people.
I'm not licensed to practice in Wyoming, but I highly suggest you and your child get out of the home. I'm not aware of the laws in Wyoming, but if you choose to leave the state, it is possible he could get an attorney to file something in court to make you and the child return (not to the house necessarily, but probably to WY). If you move to another state, I recommend you immediately speak to a family law attorney there about filing for divorce and custody under the UCCJEA section that makes exceptions for domestic violence/abuse situations. Either way, it sounds like your husband is suffering some terrible effects from his head injury that could end up with very serious harm to you or your child.
Any answer I provide to an individual's questions are based upon general knowledge and do not create an attorney-client relationship. There is not enough information provided to give a full and complete legal response and you must meet with me or another attorney directly in order to discuss the details of your entire case.
